Romanian Olympians Larisa Iordache and Diana Bulimar were the top individual qualifiers Thursday as the 2013 European Championships continued in Moscow.

The women's competition featured several bright starts but also serious disappointments, with each of the top all-around contenders committing significant errors.

The first session got off to a dark start, as new British champion Gabby Jupp suffered a knee injury on her double pike balance beam dismount in the second rotation. The British hopeful was carried off the podium and reportedly is preparing to return to Great Britain as soon as possible. Hometown gymnast Anastasia Grishina also faltered, missing her piked Jaeger on uneven bars and committing costly errors on beam, jeopardizing her chances of advancing to the all-around final.

Competing in the second of two sessions of qualification, the Romanian duo nailed everything but uneven bars, that event that continues to plague the Romanian women's program. Bulimar fell off her Tkatchev for just 12.700 while Iordache fell apart for 12.966. Iordache earned the top spot on balance beam (excellent ff, tucked full and RO, ff, triple twist dismount) and qualified to finals on vault and floor exercise.

The final subdivision saw Russian stars Aliya Mustafina and Ksenia Afanasyeva come out fighting. Both began well on floor exercise, where reigning world champion Afanasyeva earned the highest mark (despite a .3 deduction for landing out of bounds on her 2 1/2, layout front). Both Olympians scored well on double-twisting Yurchenkos vaults in rotation two.

Mustafina, the 2012 Olympic champion, swung a watered-down routine on uneven bars for 15.025 (6.3 Difficulty score), the highest score on bars. Afanasyeva, one of the few Russians who does not wear grips, crashed her full-twisting double dismount for 12.466. Mustafina, who needed less than 13.000 on balance beam to pass Iordache, instead fell twice for 11.666 to land behind Grishina in the rankings. Afanasyeva managed to stay on beam, but costly wobbles brought her a 13.100 and brought Mustafina sighs of relief as she advanced to the all-around final.

Despite the beam disaster, Mustafina remained stoic. She told "Sovietsky Sport" she was "absolutely" not upset over the routine, saying it was just an off day on beam.

"I feel good," she said. "And before the performance on balance beam I didn't feel any strong emotions, no nerves. Everything was going as usual. In general, I see no reason for disappointment. Qualification is qualification, and in the final everything starts over."

Switzerland's Giulia Steingruber (layout Rudi and Tsukahara full) edged Russia's Maria Paseka (double-twisting Yurchenko and layout Podkopayeva) for first on vault.

Competition continues Friday at Olympisky Arena with the all-around finals. The competition will be streamed live to viewers in Europe at this link.

Many changes resulted from the feedback of millions of users who tested prerelease versions of the new browser. The most compelling reason to upgrade is the improved security.

Internet Explorer 7 makes surfing the web fundamentally safer by offering greater protection against viruses, spyware, and other online risks.
